Shelia Murphy

Shelia Murphy is an Owner of Audibel Hearing Aid Centers.  Shelia was raised on a farm in Hazlehurst, Georgia, with her two sisters, Becky and Vernice.  They spent many summers working in the tobacco fields with their daddy.  Shelia graduated from Jeff Davis High School, Class of 1977.  After graduation, Shelia married Wayne, while he was serving in the military.  They moved to Fort Walton Beach, where their only son, Jason, was born.  Shelia’s priorities were as a housewife and stay-at-home mom.  Upon returning home to Hazlehurst, Shelia began learning how to upholstery furniture with her grandmother.  After her grandmother’s retirement, Shelia started helping her father with his five chicken houses, gathering eggs twice a day.  Surprisingly one day in 1983, Wayne’s excitement and curiosity surrounding the hearing aid industry drew Shelia’s interest in supporting her husband’s passion, soon to become her own.

 In 1984, Shelia was hired as the Secretary in a Waycross hearing aid practice three days a week.  After her son started school, she began working more frequently until purchasing their own hearing aid practice, which became a full-time job with administrative and financial responsibilities.  In 2000, Wayne and Shelia decided to partner their company with Audibel.  Over several years of hard work, Audibel Hearing Aid Centers has expanded to 4 locations in Douglas, Tifton, Valdosta, and Waycross.   Shelia says the hearing aid industry is a fun, loving, and caring business that she is proud to be a part of.  She enjoys seeing the difference hearing aids make in someone’s life.  Mostly, Shelia loves interacting with patients and developing lasting friendships.  

Outside of work, Shelia enjoys weekly lunches with her sisters reminiscing and catching up on local news.  Shelia also looks forward to a manicure and pedicure at her favorite nail salon.  She loves spending quality time with her family and friends.  She thoroughly enjoys vacationing at the beach and mountains with her husband.

First time ever getting my hearing examined. Ben put me completely at ease. He explained what he was doing and how it measured my hearing. I always feel better when i understand the process. He was great. Ms. Gwen was great at the front too. Very nice. Top notch operation.
